The Notting Hill Music Group Limited is a truly international music publishing operation, based in London and Los Angeles, with first-class representation in every corner of the globe. Founded in 1990 as the international repertoire division of the Japanese Nippon Television Music Corporation, it became Notting Hill Music following a successful management buyout in 1993 and has rapidly become one of the world’s leading independent music publishers.

The Notting Hill Music Group Limited can offer a complete range of publishing, sub-publishing, international administration and territorial publishing representation arrangements. In addition to our own extensive catalogue, the company also administers a growing number of third party music publishing companies and we are able to structure tailor-made publishing arrangements for the most demanding of clients.
